Hailed worldwide by the likes of Rolling Stone, Billboard and Nylon as being this year's ‘pretty much irresistible’ indie darlings, ELECTRIC GUEST have kicked off their studio career in grand fashion with Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley, Gorillaz, The Black Keys, U2) producing their debut album ''Mondo".
A seamless fusion of Motown, 70's daytime radio funk lite, indie rock and 60's French pop, "Mondo" is the breezy slick pop sensation of 2012. File unashamedly next to Hall & Oates and Gnarls Barkley. Be sure to check out their Splendour sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne.
